Product Safety

Product Safety

We are responsible for enforcing laws relating to the safety of consumer products.

If you suspect a consumer product is unsafe, report it to us by calling 03453 040506.  Provide as much information about the product, place of purchase and manufacturer and reason for your concerns.  This will then be passed to the relevant Trading Standards Service, which may not be your local authority. 

Business advice is available here

If you are a business and need to inform us of a safety concern, as a market surveillance authority, please use our contact details.

Product Recalls

Product recalls are made by traders about products that have problems which could affect the safety of the consumer.  The product should not be used and should be returned to the trader.  This is not a complete list.

The list of current recalls held by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute can be found here

Vehicle recall notices can be found on the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency website.
